The previous story is rather fortuitous as I've been working on the idea for a local blog shoot for some time with a few other gun blogger stalwarts--Old NFO, Keads and Proud Hillbilly to name three--and I just cinched exclusive use of a pretty decent new range in, of all places, Berkley County, WV on Saturday, Dec. 3rd. So if you're a local gunny or even one who lives a ways a way and feels like a road trip, here's your chance to come join with some other great gun folks and get some shooting in, hopefully followed by some decent eating, drinking and socializing.
Exact times are still being worked out, but the range will be open for use by all with handguns, rifles and shotguns, to include some five-stand shotgun shooting for those interested. Right now, I'm putting together a rough count of those expected to attend, so if you're interested, please shoot Murphy and me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't promise that Murphy'll be there, but I will be, and so far, the above-mentioned celebrity bloggers are expected as well.
Let me know how many you'll be bringing and what type of firearms that you're planning to shoot. Anything but full-auto is ok. (Drat! No M60!) When I get your e-mail, I'll send you all of the info about the shoot, including directions, as they become finalized. Some ammo will be available for purchase at the range but your own is also welcome. And yes, WV is concealed-carry friendly but check to ensure that your own state has reciprocity before coming down.
If you're a reader of this blog or those above and a shooter, you're definitely welcome to come.
Donations will be accepted to cover the range fees, and anything collected in excess will be donated to Wounded Warriors.
